THE DEVIL WENT DOWN TO GEORGIA (Hayward / Crain / Daniels / Edwards / Marshall) The Charlie Daniels Band - 1979 The devil went down to Georgia He was looking for a soul to steal He was in a bind 'Cause he was way behind And he was willing to make a deal When he came upon this young man Sawing on a fiddle and plain' it hot And the devil jumped Up on a hickory stump And said boy let me tell you what Now you play a pretty good fiddle, boy But give the devil his due I'll bet a fiddle of gold Against your soul 'Cause I think I'm better than you The boy said my name's Johnny And it might be a sin But I'll take your bet And you're gonna regret 'Cause I'm the best there's ever been The devil opened up his case And he said I'll start this show And fire flew from his fingertips As he rosined up his bow Then he pulled the bow across the strings And it made a [sic] evil hiss And a band of demons joined in And it sounded something like this When the devil finished Johnny said well you're pretty good old son Just sit right in that chair right there And let me show you how it's done He played Fire on the Mountain Run boys, run The devil's in the House of the Rising Sun Chicken in a bread pan picking out dough Granny does your dog bite No child, no The devil bowed his head Because he knew that he'd been beat And he laid that golden fiddle On the ground and Johnny's feet Johnny said, Devil just come on back If you ever want to try again I done told you once you son of a bitch I'm the best there's ever been And he played Fire on the Mountain Run boys, run The devil's in the House of the Rising Sun Chicken in a bread pan picking out dough Granny does your dog bite No child, no
